Rent Well


New way to schedule a class: Rent Well Interest List

I get calls about Rent Well classes every day.  Often the classes which are scheduled do not fit around work, school, treatment or other obligations. A frequent question is often “Why don’t you offer a class on….” Wednesday mornings, or Friday evenings, or ____?  That’s a good question, Why don’t we?  While it may not be reasonable to offer several classes a day, seven days a week, there is a way we can better meet the needs of the community.

Lifeability is changing the way it schedules classes to be more responsive to the needs of the community.  You tell us when you need a class!  When enough people have expressed an interest in a specific day/time, I will work with our team of instructors to get one scheduled, generally within two weeks. Everyone interested in that time slot will get an email letting them know the details and a link to the registration page. Click here to be added to the Rent Well Class Interest List

If you have a group of participants (up to 12) and want to have your own class – Contact us at ten.ytilibaefilnull@ofni or 503-941-0126 for additional information.


A lot of people move in during summer – if you are one of those planning to move this summer, there is no better time to take a Rent Well class.

In the class we include lots of information that can help you keep more money in your wallet. Here are only three examples:

  1. How to avoid paying application fees just to be turned down, time after time.
  2. How to get the most deposit returned when you move out.
  3. What simple little thing renters often forget to spend five minutes doing during the move-out process which can save them $250 or more
